Next Steps

  • Schedule a visit. Even if you’ve already visited campus, come and get a more in-depth experience to see why Elmira College is the place for you.

  • Make sure you’re receiving all the aid you need. If you have not already done so:

    • U.S. Citizens and eligible non-citizens should complete the FAFSA at studentaid.gov to find out if you are eligible for aid in addition to your merit scholarship.

    •  New York State and Vermont State residents complete your state grant applications – New York: hesc.ny.gov, Vermont: VSAC.org

    • Research private sources of scholarships 

    • Additional information on financial aid and supporting resources are available through our Financial Aid site

  • Submit your deposit. The easiest way to commit to Elmira is through our admission portal. You can submit your Enrollment Deposit  and New Student Orientation fee online using a Debit or Credit Card. International Students, please contact the Office of Admissions for payment options.

  • Make sure all paperwork, including transcripts, are submitted. You can check to see what’s been received through our admission portal.

  • Watch for future emails. Throughout the spring and summer you’ll be hearing from us to let you know what’s happening on campus, how we’re preparing for your arrival and what we need from you. You will receive information about getting started in the MyEC Student Portal, a central spot for you to register for classes, track your payment information, review your housing contract, access forms and more. Be sure to check this site regularly and check your EC email often as we will use these channels to communicate with you.
